  • Beat the heavy cream in a bowl until soft peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the dark chocolate mixture until evenly blended. Spoon the mixture into the prepared graham cracker crust. Spread 1/2 chocolate whipped topping over the dark chocolate layer. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make the milk chocolate layer by placing the milk chocolate, miniature marshmallows, milk, and salt into the top of a double boiler over medium heat. Stir until chocolate melts, and mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla. Allow to cool, stirring occasionally.

  • Beat the remaining 1/2 cup heavy cream in a bowl until soft peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the milk chocolate mixture until evenly blended. Pour the mixture over chocolate topping layer. Spread the remaining chocolate whipped topping over the milk chocolate layer. Spoon the whipped topping over the chocolate topping. If desired, garnish with miniature chocolate chips.

My husband said he would be excited to have this again. I actually wasn't crazy about it until we froze it...then it was fantastic. For new bakers a make-shift double boiler is easily concocted by placing a just smaller pot or bowl inside a little larger pot of water. I think an Oreo crust might be even better. Oh and I just used regular Cool Whip twice instead of chocolate no problem. Don't be intimidated by all of the ingredients it's not hard...okay maybe a little time consuming but worth it. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was really rich and tasty. Way too much ingrediant to fit in the pie crust. I must have done something wrong cause mine never solidified enough to layer I had to freeze each layer. Read More

I used regular cool whip and mixed in chocolate instant pudding mix. It turned out to be a very nice recipe that I am going to use again! Read More

This recipe was quite good -- very rich. However it seemed like trying to fit a gallon of milk into a shot glass. One pie crust is in no way big enough for all of what is supposed to go into it. I had to omit one tub of whipped cream and still ended up having extra from each chocolate portion (which was fine when poured into dessert glasses and layered!) Read More

I made this for a friend's Thanksgiving gathering. It didn't seem like it ever got very firm but it was a huge hit with everyone who tried it. I also used the chocolate pudding mixed into my whipped topping. My family likes the dark chocolate layer so we made a pie with just that layer and it was wonderful. I would definitely recommend you use a deep dish pie crust if you make all three layers! The one layer pie fit perfectly into a regular pie crust. Also substitute a chocolate cookie crumb crust and it's much better. I used chocolate animal crackers butter and sugar for mine. Read More

Pretty easy to make--my local grocery store didn't have chocolate whipped topping so I added a little cocoa powder to plain whipped topping instead. My family loved it and I'm sure I'll be making it again! Thanks for sharing! Read More

I just have to say that this pie was amazing! I made it exactly according to recipe only change I made was also making a layer of white chocolate using your ingredients and method and dividing all three (dark milk white) mixtures in half to fill two chocolate graham pie crusts instead of one. Absolutely awesome! My husband doesn't care much for chocolate but he practically ate the whole first pie by himself! I have made twice since first finding this recipe and it is always awesome! Thanks a million! Read More

I really liked this recipe as a base - seemed to be a lot of additional steps (I suppose for presentation's sake). Here is what I did: I melted 5 squares of Baker's chocolate (2 dark; 3 semi-sweet) with 2 cups of mini-marshmallows and 1/3 c. of half/half cream in the microwave. I put this in the microwave for one-minute on high. I whisked the mixture until all of the marshmallows were dissolved. I then refrigerated the mix for 30 minutes. Added 2 cups of Cool Whip to the mixture. I also added a little bit of chocolate mousse mix from Dr. Oetker (about 1/3 of a package)to help things stiffen up a bit. Poured into prepared pie crust topped with remaining Cool Whip. My sister the choc. pie connaisseur thought that this had a really dense chocolate flavour and would have liked a bit lighter or creamier filling. However I thought the flavours were spot on and the texture of the filling was almost perfect--next time I'll cut out the Dr. Oetker (or cut it down to 2 tbsp). Read More
